Christmas Goodies...Day Two of the September Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks!

Good morning friends!! Are you ready for another round of sneak peeks at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog?? The previews for the September release started yesterday and will continue today and tomorrow with our release day blog hop to follow on Sunday. Today, we have the pleasure of introducing you to the newest stamps by another Krafty artist, Emilie Goulet. This month, Emilie has created several new characters all set for some Christmas fun! Each one is absolutely adorable and packed with personality plus! While on your sneak peek travels today, you may also spy yet another new stamp set being released this Sunday...the Christmas Inside Sentiment Set. This is another holiday sentiment set perfect for finishing off the interior of your cards...but really, you can use them anywhere your little krafty heart desires. :)

For my card today, I inked up the sweet "Baking Elf"...isn't she perfect for all those friends who love to bake holiday goodies?? Well, I also think she'd be perfect for those friends who love to EAT those holiday goodies. lol  I used to do a lot of baking, but these last few years have been so busy that it's been hard to find pockets of time to get much done...wouldn't it be nice to have the assistance of a couple of little baking elves in your kitchen?? I know my husband would be thrilled to see a pie like this being brought to the table for dessert...pie is Dean's all-time favourite. :)  I used some Bo Bunny papers from last year (this had to be one of my favourite collections from last year...really kicking myself for not buying more of it). I added some dollar store ribbon, a little clear snowflake covered with Glamour Dust and some Viva Decor Pearls (Ice White) to finish it off.


Here's a peek at the inside of my card where I used the Christmas Inside Sentiments set.



"Baking Elf" was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copic markers.



Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59  Clothes: RV000, V01, V12, V15, V17, V09, BG72, BG75, BG78, C5, C7, YG00, YG03, YG11, YG25, G28
